Change- part 3 of 3 – [Motivational Writer]

January 24th, 2015

In part 2 of 3 in my blog ‘Change’ I stated that; if you don’t change with the times, you will stagnate, there is no standing still, you are either moving forward, or sliding backwards. I also stated that making changes and improvements in your life at a steady pace instead of wild New Year’s solutions would be much more effective, and more likely to work. So what is your plan to live a lifestyle to your liking once and for all?
Where do you see yourself a year from now?
When I was a practicing Social Worker, I heard all the reasons why some people could not be happy and successful etc.
However, I also had clients who succeeded in life despite some really harrowing circumstances they found themselves in. So why did these particular people succeed? They changed their mindset to a positive one, they became self-motivated, and they became empowered and took action to live a more productive happier life.
It does not matter what has happened in the past, start making steady changes now, one step at a time! Just imagine- 52 weeks in a year means- 52 small changes in a year. WOW! You will be a very different person after a year, don’t you agree? Anything can happen!

2015 What a Blast! It is about attitude! Part 3 of 3

January 7th, 2015

In part 2 of 3 of 2015 What a Blast! It is about attitude! I wrote about how negativity compounds on negativity, just like being positive, also compounds on being a positive, empowered person. When I wrote part 2 of 3, I had no idea I was going to experience the following.

While doing my weekly shopping, I noticed a child fall flat on her back, I thought it odd as children fall forward, but I did not see the beginning of the fall, so the child had my full attention.  Immediately, the mother quickly pulled the crying child along the floor by a belt [restrainer for the child not to run away] that was tied around the child’s waist. While my brain was getting itself into gear deciding whether to revert back to my social work days, act professionally and intervene, or simply to react personally and tell the woman what I thought of her as a parent. I walked over to the woman and began speaking with her and the child making sure the child was ok, while at the same time speaking with the mother in general, but in reality assessing the situation and the mother. To cut a long story short, this lady was in desperate need of assistance, and now receiving it.

Oh yes! 2015, is going to be a blast! However, my question to you is; what are you going to do for someone else, to make their 2015 a blast.

2015 What a Blast! It is about Attitude! -Part 2 of 3

January 3rd, 2015

In part one of ‘2015 What a Blast!’  I wrote a poem about my dog waking me up at 4am. If you think about it, the poem had a lot to do with attitude. I had a choice to be annoyed at being woken up at that early hour or being happy. In the poem you will notice that I woke up with joy, and I even went further to state that I patted my dog in all her favourite places and wished peace, yes, to all the world’s races.

 Now I don’t know about you, but I am certainly not my best at 4am, and could have gotten quite annoyed at the dog, but chose not to. This is only a minor incident, but it certainly reflects life, doesn’t it? There are so many little things in life we get annoyed at, when in fact, we can just reframe the situation into something more positive.

Negativity, compounds, negativity and before you know it- you are just one big negative person, is that what you want for the next year?

Being positive, also compounds on being a positive, empowered person. This is the way to go, oh what a blast! It does not matter what obstacles come your way – big or small, be positive! 2015, is your year to succeed!



2015 What a Blast! – Part 1 of 3 [Motivational Writer]

January 1st, 2015

I woke to 2015 with such joy

My dog jumping on my bed with her favourite toy

4am, you’ve got to be joking!

But with my dog, there is no room for moping

Bleary- eyed I saw the outline of her black shape

2015 – Oh this year is going to be just great!

I patted her, in all her favourite places

As I wished peace, yes, to all the world’s races.





Change- part 2 of 3 –[Motivational Writer]

December 27th, 2014

The only thing in life that is guaranteed is: change, taxes and death. Yes I know, if you feel comfortable in what you are doing, and don’t like change, why do it? Just look around at nature, it is full of changes- Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer- the seasons change. We all grow older whether we like it or not, this is life. The thing is; if you don’t change with the times, you will stagnate, there is no standing still, you are either moving forward, or sliding backwards.

So what changes are you going to make in 2015? No, not new year resolutions, life time changes, little changes that mount up through the year, that make a big impact by the end of 2015. Changes that you will continue to change in 2016 and onwards throughout life.

Making changes and improvements in your life at a steady pace instead of wild new year resolutions, are more likely to work. Try it!

December 25th, 2014

How are you going to make 2015 Rock? Leave all that does not serve you behind in 2014. If it has gone past its used by date, whether it is a job, a relationship, a particular thing you do, an attitude, if it is an obstacle in your life- leave it behind. Go into the new year fresh! Fresh ideas, fresh in health and full of action! Leave the crap behind! Take 2015 and make it work for you, and make it work well! Give it all you’ve got, and take from it what you deserve!

A couple of days ago, I was very impressed with a nurse, in the way  she spoke so kindly, the way she seemed so caring- so naturally I had to ask her about the words that were tattooed on her arm. ‘HOPE is the ANCHOR to your SOUL’ She told me that her clients were able to achieve great things with just hope, despite all odds. I reflected on my social work days, and thought about the clients who clung on to hope and achieved great outcomes and those who thought their plight were simply hopeless. In 2015, do not wait for someone to motivate you, feel the hope surge in your body-2015 will be your year of success, no matter what your past has been. Remember  ‘HOPE is the ANCHOR to your SOUL’

It is time for a change, what are the changes you intend to make in 2015? It is not about making new year resolutions, it is about making changes of a life time. It is about being who you really want to be, what you really want to do and just doing it irrespective of what anyone else thinks or says. part 1 of 3

Self-Motivated, Empowered and into Action. Part 5 of 5 [Motivational author]

November 9th, 2014


Action time!  Whose action? Yours! This is part 5 of 5, and this means action! I have spoken about self-motivation and being empowered long enough. If you want to succeed, then you have to apply the action to your goals, to your dreams in order to have a successful life. This is about you! This is about your story, about your life and what you intend to do with it.

Never mind about your past, never mind about the people who have gotten in your way, never mind about the obstacles, get into action right now! Take charge of your own life! Every day is an opportunity to be who you really want to be. Take the challenge, and make your life count!

Write to me and let me know how you intend to achieve your goals, and if you do not want to do so on social media, send me an email- as some of you already do on

You have only one life! Make the most of it!  Delece Ford
